is trying to lower expectations, ed? >> well, shep, to hear the obama camp tell it, it's almost as if they are not sure the president is going to be able to show up and complete a full sentence. jay carney was telling reporters a few moments ago the president gives very long answers and that's a liability for him in this debate. when is the last time you heard the white house press secretary say the president is any sort of a liability. they are desperately trying to lower expectations going into this. they are playing up mitt romney's expectations by saying he was so gifted in those republic primary debates. take a listen to david plouffe. >> we have expected all along that governor romney will have a good night. he has prepared more than any candidate in history. he has shown himself to be a very very good debater through the years. the fact of the matter is the president hasn't had a debate like this in four years. if you go back four years ago, he did pretty darn well against hillary clinton who is a tough debater. he survived those primaries and did a pretty good job agains
, with humor, if they, can set up the idea that president obama doesn't tell the truth on things, about his record, and then build on that to make their case for themselves. chris: tough challenge. can they do that and become mr. like snble >> well, i think it even goes being likable. he needs to show he has some empathy for what americans are living through right now. he needs to show sensitivity to this. because they may say, ok this guy understands business. this guy understands wall street. he understands the economy. but does he understand me? and when they go to the voting booth, they want someone who is going to advance their own economic interests. chris: so it's not just about battling with the other guy, it's selling to the audience as well. let's take a look. for his part to keep the likeability advantage he has over romney, the president has to avoid the kind of condescension we saw him exhibit in that debate with hillary clinton. >> he's very likable. i agree with that. i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough, hillary. no doubt about it. >> thank you.

barack obama did with his fiscal stimulus. what they don't tell you is that much of what the president had to legislate for, we are already doing automatically. so let's not allow the caricature of what we are doing go unchallenged. if plan a really was as rigid and dogmatic as our critics claim, i'd be demanding a plan b, and getting danny and vince to design it. but it isn't. which is why you were right, earlier this week, to overwhelmingly reject the call for us to change our economic course. we have taken big and bold steps to support demand and boost growth. and we stand ready to do so again and again and again until self-sustaining growth returns.

battlegrounds today tell an obama victory story. democratic strategist steve el mendorf, kerry's deputy campaign manager in '04. how are you? >> good, how are you. >> tell me about why your guy won the debates and lost the election and what that says potentially about this dynamic and this race right now is this. >> i think any challenger has a benefit when they get up on the stage against the president of the united states. the debates level the playing field. they put you on the stage in an equal footing. i think mitt romney comes into the debate with an advantage because of that. i think the question in this race, all campaigns are different and i think in this race, this is very much of a choice election. i think people see very different visions for the future between these two candidates and my guess is, when we get out of the debates they are going to continue to see the two visions and right now they're picking barack obama's vision. i think in 2004, it was more of a referendum on bush and i think ultimately people decided that the referendum they wanteded to stay with the incumbent. i t

[laughter] all both the romney campaign could use some of that. some polls are distorted because of the sample. so many are based on a sample of voters that is even more than 2008. i think mitt romney is a little bit behind but he needs a and intervening event to move ahead and the debate this a good time to achieve one. >> that is when you will start seeing things moved after that bourse debate mitt romney will talk about factual information with the media does not want americans to no-space expectations are so low he does not have to win in order to win. we need to pull outside of urban america. everybody is not skewed in one direction or the other i don't think obama will win this blown away. lou: will it get tighter with the benghazi murders and terrorist attacks that the white house tries to cover up stonewalling the press and congress is a

years. >> it is not just generating more jobs, you know, i'm going to create 1 more million jobs, tell me how, where. >> today it would be obama. tomorrow it could be romney. i can'ts promise anything. >> reporter: they both hope that the debates will help them finally make up their minds. bill whittaker, cbs news, las vegas. >>> 50,000 techis are invading san francisco today. they started today at the center. it is one of the world's biggest check conferences, attending the latest technology view that he will have to offer. >> the reason on what their plans are, the products they use. if you don't know what the plans are, then you cannot adopt them in a family fashion. you cannot stay on the old stuff. >> reporter: they made softwares for their processes from everything like the credit cards and the atm transactions to the hotel reservations. oracle world runs through thursday. >>> people visiting, of course, they are wondering about this heat that we have. roberta gonzales is here with a look at our forecast. roberta? >> reporter: and yes, to see the full moon tonight, it's a big gia
. >> president barack obama: no matter how many times they tell you they are going to talk specifics, really soon... they don't do it! and, the reason is, because the math doesn't work. >> chris: you are the master of the budget, briefly, let's go through the plan. the obama camp says independent groups say if you cut those tax rates for everybody, 20%, it costs $5 trillion over ten years. true? >> not in least the bit true. look, this goes to show if you tor fewer statistics... that study has been so discredited. it wasn't a measurement of mitt romney and his policy. here's what we are saying -- >> how much would it cost. >> revenue-neutral. >> chris: i'm talking about the -- we'll get to the deductions. the tax rate. >> the cut in tax rates is lower all americans tax rates, 20%. >> chris: how much does it cost. >> it is revenue neutral. >> chris: it's not unless you take away the deductions. i'm asking you -- we'll get to that in a second. first half, lowering the tax rate. how much -- does it cost $5 trillion. >> no. no. look, i will give you a baseline, what this is about. we're saying, limit
to presidential debates. he also i can tell you had one more practice session last night after president obama had a campaign event in las vegas. now, as you pointed out, both sides are really trying to tamper down expectations. lavishing praise on the other candidate. that is because there's so much at stake in these debates really for most candidates. mitt romney tried to turn his campaign around, but president obama trying to hold on to the narrow lead you mentioned in your introduction. really trying to tamp down expectations. should also point out that president obama holding his debate camp right here in nevada which is a key swing state. one of the states he's hoping to win in november. he has a small lead in this state according to the abc wall street journal poll. he's trying to garner excitement by holding his debate camp here. he had a campaign event last night in las vegas. campaign officials tell me we shouldn't be surprised to see him shake a few hands over the next few days to garner more excitement as we get closer to wednesday. >> as you speak of excitement, we understand bill cli
will remain in afghanistan until after the election. what does that tell you? it tells you this is a political move that president obama does not look weak on terror. men and women are dying. >> eric: greg? >> greg: i can't tell if this is an administration or five women who can't decide where to brunch. nobody is communicating. i feel bad for generals. if the generals complained about birth control obama would call them. or maybe make sandra fluke a general and better lines of communication. this is what happens when you spend more time with joy behar than intel briefings. >> eric: bob, simultaneously over the weekend, sunday, the death toll, casualty count went over 2,000 in afghanistan. president obama on the stump saying al-qaeda is dead. his own general, guy leading troops in afghanistan saying al-qaeda is not dead. they are back in force. >> eric: initial al-qaeda responsible for 9 are dead. keep in mind every terrorist group in mideast and north africa take the name of al-qaeda because it's well-known name and something they raise money from saudis with. there is a more fundamental ques
is the president trying to sharpen his message prior to wednesday? >> good morning, tom. i can tell you that's really one of the main goals of this debate camp here in nevada. the obama campaign trying to get the president to give shorter, sharper answers in part so that he can get all of this key points now. they say the president tends to be professorial sometimes. that's what they want to avoid. they want to give direct and crisp answers. also to avoid potentially looking condescending. that's one of the big things they're worried about here. so far president obama has had four mock debates with senator john kerry who is of course no stranger to presidential debates. he also i can tell you had one more practice session last night after president obama had a campaign event in las vegas. now, as you pointed out, both sides are really trying to tamper down expectations. lavishing praise on the other candidate. that is because there's so much at stake in these debates really for most candidates. mitt romney tried to turn his campaign around, but president obama trying to hold on to the narrow
debates resonate because they fit within a larger narrative. i'll tell you now the two campaigns understand this about the narrative. the obama campaign has been better at framing it around mitt romney than mitt romney has been framing it around the president. the obama campaign believes even if there are devastating or memorable zingers, if they don't fit within the narrative which they believe they control, it won't last and alter the underlying dynamics of this race. the romney campaign fears that might be true but wants to try its very best to alter that narrative. >> what about president obama? will we see the competitive president obama that privately people say really dislikes mitt romney? or will we see the cool, constitutional law professor. >> both. because to win, because he's competitive, he needs to be cool. he knows that. that's the one overriding concern presented to him by his advisers. don't freak out. don't get anxious. don't get publicly visibly irritable. >> a lot of people support mitt romney over the weekend on the sunday talk shows were saying he has to be
it as a steppingstone to dominate asia and has used the word nuclear war. well, how does president obama plan on handling these nut jobs? let me tell you that wednesday's debate, romney is going to broaden his message to include foreign policy. >>> plus we have a surprise increase in the ism manufacturing report. >>> plus again bernanke defends his debt plan. he's enabling the obama treasury to sell trillions of dollars in deficits. >>> hundreds of mexicans are involved in the fast and furious. this is a terrible story, hundreds of mexicans may be involved. should attorney general holder be fired immediately over this new information? >>> the ism signals no recession, that's good. but is the obama-bernanke qe stimulus plan going to bail out the president in this election and what about down the road, does it give us a huge inflationary bubble? lee munson, he's chief investment officer of a port folio. you have got the feds blowing smoke and water and money at the stock market. we did have a good manufacturing report today, i like that because that's good for america. a lot of stuff that's not

thing. i can tell you the obama campaign was happy to have chris christie raise expectations and raise the bar for mitt romney heading into wednesday's debate, john. >> a rare moment of honesty, refreshing in a political campaign. what then are the strategies of both campaigns heading into this debate? >> well, president obama has been in nevada a few days during the campaign. mitt romney in massachusetts sparring with rob portman who's playing the role of president obama in these debate prep sessions. for president obama his foe mitt romney, massachusetts senator john kerry. they've been working on this debate for months and months. an interesting story over the weekend, a passage about what mitt romney's been doing. this from the "new york times." it says, "mr. romney's team has concluded that debates are about creating moments and has equipped him with a series of zingers he has memorizened and has been tracksing on aides since august." now, they're right debates are about moments but ain an amusin image. mitt romney sitting in a room peppering them with zingers. i would like to be
with the obamas. it's not as easy to get their ear. tell me what michelle was like now. >> i mean, you know, i think she was very open. i thought she was very congenial. i had never seen her that way before. you know, i mean, like you say, you know, running for the presidency is one thing. being the president is a whole other. she's the first lady. i just never, you know -- the things about him being romantic, the pictures of their very first home. all of the stuff that we got a chance to look at that i have never seen before. i'm not saying the pictures aren't available to anybody else, but they're not available on any other talk show. >> now -- >> you know, i thought it was great, and i think when she comes on, i think people are going to see a really, really nice side of her that you don't get a chance to see. >> act like a lady, think like a man. we know it's your best seller. i saw the movie. we actually featured it our show several times, talked to michael elly as well. one thing you talked with the first lady about was dating, and the two daughters. let's listen. >> you started talking

's got to do i take on president obama directly when it comes to policy. what he has to tell the voters is i've got a better plan for an economic recovery than the president. he has to challenge him directly. but, brooke, he has to do it in a way, in which american public doesn't decide, i don't like this guy very much, because they like president obama. so he has to challenge him without getting really nasty about it. and then he has to let the american people know that he understands their problems. because by a 3-1 margin in this country, voters believe the president better understands their anxieties and their economic fears than mitt romney. so he needs to talk to the public. >> in addition to that, 30 seconds, i want to ask you, what constitutes the win? is it one line that we're going to loop over and over the next day, a gaffe on behalf of the other candidate. what are we watching for? >> let me turn the question around, a gaffe say loss. if you make a big mistake, it is a problem for you. when mitt romney finds himself in sort of a candid moment where he can't predict what the
obama leading in swing states but trailing among independents. who do you believe? >> in a telephone calls every day, whether it is the staff of one particular candidate or a party, telling me that the numbers are skewed. believe them, don't believe them, either way, these constantly changing surveys are a big part of our political world. >> talk to voters, and if there is one thing they are tired of almost as much as negative ads it is polls. >> the problem is the change from day to day. how valid are they? >> i do not watch them. >> skeptics come from both sides of the aisle. they say number-cruncher's could have a motive or gather flawed data. while there are plenty of true believers. >> i think they're pretty reliable. >> others say politicians downplay the data. >> what do you think when you see polls? >> bair interesting snapshot. >> tim kaine is cautious about a southern -- sudden breakthrough. >> you always have to adopt a reasonably pessimistic poll as your guide because you do want to stay energized. >> look of the presidential race. 61% of voters think the president will b
